Making reservations with a Eurail pass: same price as full fare ticket?
Hi, I’m trying to make a reservation for my friend and I going from Salerno to Florence in Italy. We both have Eurail passes. But when I try to make the reservation it is the same price as without the Eurail pass. Is this functioning correctly? Does that mean the Eurail pass won’t save me any money on this trip? Or have I just not successfully linked our passes to this reservation?Thanks,Josh
How do you work out if it's worth getting an jnterrail ticket? Does anyone have experiences to share?
Checking if others have made a similar journey to see if an interrail ticket for a family of 4 (1 youth, 1 free, 2 adults) makes sense if travelling from Cardiff to Gothenberg via Brussels, Hamburg and Copenhagen this July.
Seat Reservation Problems with TGV in France
Hello Guys,me and 3 friends want to visit France in May. Therefore we have bought an interrail ticket. We want to travel from Dresden main station (Germany) to Nantes main station (France) on the 12th of May with a departure at 8:12. The seat reservation from Paris to Nantes is no problem but the reservation from Frankfurt main station / Karlsruhe main station is not possible. We tried booking it in the rail planner app and via the website but it doesn't work. We have read in this forum thread https://community.eurail.com/train-connections-reservations-47/seat-reservation-at-sncf-1145 that we potentially need a pass cover number. The question is: Do we need this number to book this route or are there any other problems. And additionally: If we need this number to book this route can you explain how it is done? Thanks in advance for your help.Sunny greetings from GermanyWeWi
Is the first class global pass worth it?
Hello,I am currently trying to decide which ticket I should get.I was wondering if the First Class Pass is worth it, since to actually benefit from first class, I will always have to pay for seat reservation right? So is it worth getting? Additionally, are the seat reservations cheaper if I have the Interrail pass or is it the same price as if I didn’t have a pass?For second class there are a lot of trains that don’t require reservation so I am more leaning on getting that one.

My child was 11, but is now a youth at age 12
Hello,I purchased passes for the family as we were planning on using them at the end of December of this year. COVID restriction forced us to delay our plans. One of my children was 11 years old at the time of our original plans. He has since turned 12 years old and will need a Youth pass.My question is, do I exchange his free child pass for a youth pass and pay the fee, or just purchase a new pass altogether and just let the child ticket expire?Thanks for your help!
Exchanging mobile pass to paper pass to have a Pass Cover number
Hello! Hope its okay that I'm getting in contact here. But no other helpline seems to be responsive or available. I have bought a global mobile pass. ON:IN30408834My train on the interrail reservation service seems to be unavailable. However its available through direct booking if you have a paper pass. I am leaving on Monday 14th at 15;00.Is it possible to exchange my mobile pass for a paper pass before then or will I need to buy these tickets at the gate - I was told this is a risky game. But I definitely need that specific train and can't rebook to somthing more expensive with more changes. I hope you are able to help. Many thanks
Pass cover number incorrect?
I have recently bought a global paper pass direct from interrail and am trying to book seat reservations in Italy. On the “Italiarail” website it asks for a passholder number for each traveller. I have inputed my pass cover number and all other potential numbers on the pass but nothing seems to work.I contacted customer support and they provided me with a different pass cover number than what is physically in front of me (it now starts I0 instead of mine starting I1) The new number seems to work although I am worried as to why there is a mismatch in numbers in the first place. I could see this being an issue if a ticket inspector looks at my pass and wonders why it is different to the reservation number. Please Help!!!
Senior's passes or Flexi saver pass
Hello, I have a couple of questions about passes that I can’t find the answer to on the website. Is it cheaper to get a Senior's rate for two people with the 10 day global pass, first class, or to purchase the Eurail Global Pass Saver Flexi for 2 people? I see that the Saver Flexi pass is at a 15% fare reduction for 2 to 5 people travelling together, and covers first class. My husband and I are seniors and wish to travel together, first class, and cannot see which option is less expensive. We wish to purchase our passes this month, so want to take advantage, too, of the discount that is on at the moment. We are purchasing in Canadian Dollars. Also, do the Scandinavian trains have first class travel? Finally, how can we contact customer service? All I get is a robot. Thank you for your help! Hilary Merritt
Inbound and outbound journey: how to fill it out?
Hi, we are not quite sure what to do about the inbound and outbound journey and how to fill it out. First of all, we do not know when we will be taking our last train - does that mean we have to just set a date? Because interrail is about just going with the flow you know, and there isn’t much about already deciding an end destination… We did’nt begin in our country of residence and we will not finish in it either? What do we do?

App says "It looks like you are offline. Go online to see your passes" while I'm connected to internet
Hello. I have an urgent question/issue. My Eurail app keeps saying that "It looks like you are offline. Go online to see your passes", when I try to view my pass (QR code). The internet on my phone is working fine (both WiFi and mobile data). I have restarted the app, restarted my phone, disabled the app and enabled it, but still getting the same error when trying to access my pass. Can anyone help?
Credit Card Error
I’ve finally made my itinerary and ready to book and start travel on Tuesday but well several things:The colors are hard to see on iPhone Chat program (on iPhone) hides the “X” to close it out because it covers almost the entire screen and you just can’t log out Some links do not work like I mentioned here: And lastly, the form to purchase has issues as I am not able to buy a pass.What gives people?Here is the error I get when I try to purchase a pass: can you imagine what other heads I may encounter while I travel gosh kind of scary and getting high Anxiety over all, gosh oh and did I mentioned that I just finished planning my itinerary? oh and I went to Frankfurt main train station and the DB office (service center) offer “zero” “0” support for eurail.com. Even though the links (https://www.bahn.com/en/offers/passes/eurail-pass) from DB itself sends you to eurail.com (funny right)?

Traveling in my own country with global interrail pass
Hello, I am from Paris. I am going to London then Liverpool from March 26th to March 28th. As I used my outbound and inbound journeys, I was wondering if it was possible to travel in my own country (France) and use my interrail pass in April (my pass is valid from March 26th to April 25th) ? Or can i only travel in my own country between my outbound et inbound journey ? I can book tickets on the interrail website for a round trip in France from April 14th to April the 17th but can I be sure that I’ll be travelling in good standings ? Thank you in advance for your help, Lucy
